After masking the belly, the upper surfaces received a coat of Tamiya XF-61 Dark Green (RLM71
Dunkelgrün) enlightened with approx 20% Gunze H311. Hereafter the Dark green was mixed with about 30% Tamiya XF-4 Yellow Green and sprayed in the center of the panels, but without the effect I was after. More Yellow Green was added (60-70%) and again sprayed in patches, a little over the top but the effect will become (hopefully) more subtle after further weathering. After drying it was time for the Tamiya masking tape and the splinter camo was masked according to the Xtradecal decal sheet layout. The airbrush was loaded with Gunze H65 Black Green (RLM70
Schwartzgrün), once again enlightened with approx 20% Gunze H311, and sprayed. This mixture was now mixed with about 40% Yellow Green and sprayed randomly in the panels, followed by a very light mist of heavily thinned Tamiya XF-55 Deck Tan. The masking tape was removed and I was pleasantly surprised how it came out (except 1 nasty fingerprint but that will be easily fixed).
